    Bulldogs United


     From the classroom to our community
    At Martinsburg High School, our school motto is, “Enter to Learn, Go Forth to Serve.”  For more than 130 years, this institution has taught the value of not only education, but the importance of community.  It is with this in mind that we present, “Bulldogs United: From the Classroom to Our Community.”  Martinsburg High School has continuously worked hard to give back to our local community.  Through Bulldogs United we continue to seek opportunities to reach out to our community and provide learning experiences for our students to gain a greater understanding of what it means to “Go Forth and Serve.”
